Works For Me Wednesday – Granola

I quickly discovered that when I had four children seated around the table for breakfast, they could easily go through an entire box of store-bought cereal. Not to mention the health risks of eating such a non-nutritive meal. But I really like the speed of something poured into a bowl and covered with milk; I don’t have all morning to fix something, feed it and clean it up. So I was pleased to come across this granola recipe, and extra pleased to find that I liked it. (I had tried many recipes for it and they weren’t much better than sawdust!) Please give this one a go, and happy eating.
Granola (from Nancy at Above Rubies)
4 c rolled oats
1 c crushed almonds
1/2 c whole grain flour
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 c shredded coconut
1 c sunflower seeds (I omit)
1/2 c wheat germ or whole grain bran
1 c pumpkin seeds (I omit)
1 c honey or maple syrup (I do half and half)
1 t vanilla
Combine dry ingredients in mixer. Combine honey and/or maple syrup and vanilla, pour into dry ingredients while being stirred. Scrape out onto large bake pan. Bake at 300-350 degrees for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Store in airtight container in pantry.Makes a bunch.
I multiply this by one and a half, and that batch feeds my kids about 3 days. But we don’t usually have it every day, so a batch can be around all week.
Works for me! Check out more ideas at Shannon’s.

  1. Yummy! Recipes always Work-for-Me! I was just thinking about new things to have for breakfast. I’ll give this a try. Looks like a good snack too.
